Hiding in the Shadows

My name is Dani and I am almost 20. When I was little, I was marked above my collar bone. Everyone says that it's aliens, and so does my boyfriend Pj. He has the same mark but it's on the knuckle of his thumb. My best friend Bo has been here for her whole life too and is still single. This is my story.


4. Again

I put my fingers on her wrist and her pulse was really weak. Then her pulse went flat. "Bo! Bo no don't die!" I shrieked the tears breaking my voice. Pj got up and pulled me back. I got away from him and slapped Bo. She sucked in a breath of air and her eyes snapped open. All of the lights in the train went out and I completely tipped. It rolled down a hill and we were all screaming. "Pj!" I shrieked as we rolled. Everything was shaking and I couldn't see anything. Then I felt someone wrap their arms around my shoulders and immediately knew it was Pj. Bo was screaming so I grabbed her hand. The hill was super long and took about ten minutes to reach the bottom. I opened my eyes and I saw the black mist around us, like it was forming a protection bubble. The train stopped and people under us screamed and ran. "Run!" Bo yelled and the three of us ran. Bo was still a bit out of it, so we had to kinda hold her up. "I got it!" She shouted and let go of me. The black mist surrounded us as we ran. All of the mist was surrounding us. We were trying to get out of the tipped train when a little girl cried help. Bo and Pj had ran ahead but I stopped to find the little girl. "Dani what are you doing!?" Pj called. Black mist was in long snake-columns around me. "They're going to take you!" Bo screamed. I found the little girl stuck behind broken seats. She looks about three. Her little brown ringlets curled around her perfect snowy white skin. She had blue eyes and pink heart lips. "H-help m-e." She stuttered. Pj was trying to break open the blocked door when a blast of cold wind hit the train and it balanced on the side of the water. "Dani! We have to go it's about to go into the water!" Pj screamed. I quickly grabbed the little girl. She was wearing a little long-sleeved white dress and boots. Her little eye lids fluttered away the tears. "Smoke!" She pointed towards the mist behind us, then I realized that there was more than mist. Flames were ripping through the train. As I stared Pj grabbed my free wrist and yanked me towards the cold outside. The three of us ran as fast as we could towards the woods before the whole train exploded. A woman was screaming. "My daughter! She's still in there!" She yelled and ran towards the train. "Mommy!" The little girl in my arms yelled. She turned around and ran towards me. "Ashley!" She yelled and took her out of my arms. "Thank you!" She said and started to go towards the city. Then Bo ran into someone. "Sorry!" She yelled and picked up her back pack. "I'm Elias." The boy said. Bo started to smile, but then I noticed something. On Elias' upper left arm was a drop shape like Bo's. "Elias?" I called. "Yes?" "What's that mark on your arm?" He put his hand over it like I never said anything. Bo looked puzzled, then she took off her sweater and her main t-shirt and was in her tank top. She touched the little mark above her collar bone and then moved Elias' hand from his arm. Her fingers traced her mark, then his. Which was strange because that's what I did when I met Pj and I saw his mark. "They're the same..." She muttered. She put her t-shirt back over her tank top and looked at me. "Wait, you guys have 'em too?" He asked. Elias had brown eyes and black hair. "Yeah, now more important, it's after us." I said trying to rush their convo on their matching marks. Elias then saw the mist forming. "I know a place where we can hide." He said. Pj's mark stopped glowing and the black mist was gone. Elias led us to a nice hotel. "Um may I speak to Alexander?" He asked the lady at the desk. "Alex is my cousin, we'll have a nice room for nothing." He winked. "Elias! How are you?" The young man asked. "Great, I need two rooms. Possibly the nicest?" "Of course! Follow me." Alex led us to an elevator and hit the button for the eighth floor. Then we were led down a long hallway to two large double doors. "I'll stay in your room, Bo. You know, if you know, you'd like me to protect you?" Elias said. "Sure!" Bo said. "Do you want me to stay with you?" Pj asked me, biting his lip. I couldn't help but smile. He took my hand and opened the big double doors. The room was a creamy color and there was a large bathroom and a big fluffy white bed in the center of the room. I threw my bag on the floor and went into the bathroom to take a shower. When I got out I dried off and put on a grey t-shirt with black long sleeves and black shorts. I opened the bathroom door and saw Pj lying on the window seat. He didn't hear me come out, so I came up behind him. "Boo." I whispered. He turned around, smiled, and sat up. "Come here, babe." He said and pulled my waist so I sitting next to him. He started to lightly kiss my lower cheek when I turned my head towards him. This time he kissed my lips. I wrapped my legs around his waist and he stood up. My arms snaked around his neck as he lightly pushed me against the wall. His fingers traced my cheek, then the door opened. I quickly turned my head in syncronization with Pj. Bo was standing in the door way with a shocked look on her face. My legs unlock Pj and hopped onto the floor. I walked over to Bo. "It wasn't what it looked like." I spit out. "Well it looked like you were going to h-" She said but I cut her off. "We weren't doing anything." "Mhm... sure..." I lightly shoved her and she closed the door. I put a strand of hair behind my ear and walked over to the window seat. "What is it?" I asked her. "Well I think Elias likes me." "Why do you think that?" I teased. "Wellll.... I was sitting on the bed and he put his hand on mine and sat closer." "Yeah he likes you, now go." I pushed her out the door and closed it. Pj and I sat down and watched a movie together. 

Bo's POV

I walked back to my room and opened the door. Right when I walked in, Elias was coming out of the bathroom in his jeans with wet hair and a black t-shirt. He turned around and bit his lip. I was frozen and then he started to walk towards me. He lightly shoved me against the door, making it shut. His lips lightly carressed mine. Then it was my turn. I kissed him. And he didn't mind. Then he stopped and backed up. "Want to watch a movie?" He asked. "Sure." I said, I didn't mind kissing him. We sat on the floor at the end of the bed and turned on the TV. 


I walked into Dani's room to see if she was still asleep. She was. So was Pj. The dark curtains were closed and the room was dark. I could barely see her under all the big white fluffy blankets. Pj was on the window seat under like a sheet. Because he was such a gentlemen, I guessed it was his choice. One light lit up the whole room. Light crystal blue. It was coming from their marks and mine. Then I saw the mist all around Dani. I ran over to Pj and shook him. "Pj! Pj wake up, wake up!" I shrieked as the mist curled around the corners of Dani's bed. Pj turned over and opened his eyes. Then he looked over at Dani. He threw the sheet off him and ran over to her. He shook her and she opened her eyes and sat up. "Yeah?" She smiled. She shoved the blankets off her. The mist swirled around them. Her shirt was slipped over her shoulder and you could see her mark glowing. Then the mist turned blue. "Dani!" I shrieked. Elias came running through the door at my scream. Dani then realized something was wrong when I screamed. She saw the mist and started to scoot closer to Pj, but it was to late. After the mist turned blue, it formed to the shape of her mark and started to disappear in it. "Dani!!" This time I cried it. Her blue orbs turned neon blue and a purple ring appeared around her pupils. I started to run towards her when Elias grabbed my arms and pulled me back. Pj was trying to wake her up. Her eyelids shut and she fell back. Pj picked her up and lied her on the window seat to start CPR. "Dani!" I choked through the tears running down my cheeks. Elias held onto my arms as my knees have out and I fell to the floor. 

Dani's POV

Nothing. There was nothing. I saw Pj and Elias holding Bo back. I heard Bo shriek my name. Then the mist was blue and it went black. I can't see, I can't hear, nothing. Pure nothing.
